Suggested DPN entry [was: FW: List of still incomplete languages for Debian Installer...]

I think this deserves an entry in the DPN, at least. Suggested text:

Help your language reach 100% support in the Debian Installer

Christian PERRIER has recently sent a message[1] to the Debian 
Translators mailing list looking for persons interested to translate the 
Debian Installer into the following languages: Lituanian, Bosnian, 
Tamil, Lao, Icelandic, Macedonian, Dzongkha, Nepali, Norwegian Nynorsk, 
Albanian, Alharic, Kurdish, Tagalog, Wolof (language currently disabled 
because too many important strings missing) and Tibetan. These languages 
are almost complete, but the regular contributors have not responded to 
the usual calls. Currently 55 out of 70 supported languages have reached 
100% completion, the highest number ever.

Kind regards,

Subject: List of still incomplete languages for Debian Installer...
User-Agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

There has recently been a great effort by many translators (and me!)
to get as many complete translations as possible in D-I.

Out of 70 supported languages, there are currently 55 where ALL
strings are translated. This is the highest number we ever had for

Still, we have a few languages that are not so far from being complete
but aren't.

For most of these languages, I tried as hard as possible to ping
people who contributed to these translations, in order to  get them
completed. While it succeeded for some, it failed forsome others.

So, here's the list. If by any chance you happen to be someone
speaking one of these languages, you're very welcomed to try bringing
them to 100%. Of course, the lower the current translation ratio is,
the harder it will be...:-)

Lituanian: 99%
Bosnian: 98%
Tamil: 98%
Lao: 97%
Icelandic: 95%
Macedonian: 95%
Dzongkha: 94%
Nepali: 84%
Norwegian Nynorsk: 84%
Albanian: 83%
Alharic: 82%
Kurdish: 82%
Tagalog: 78%
Wolof: 75% (language currently disabled because too many important
       strings missing)
Tibetan: 49% (enabled because it has the most important strings translated)
